One of our BP girls included a song in her songbook which starts "Can a woman fly an aeroplane? yes she can. Build a bridge ......"
She thought the words were great but neither of us knew the tune!

Any musical genius out there know it?

Thanks!

haven't heard this one before!!!


the way I'm singing it in my head now is

can a woman fly an aeroplane, yes she can,
can a woman fly an aeroplane, yes she can,
can a woman fly an aeroplane, can a woman fly an aeroplane, can a woman fly an aeroplane, yes she can,

is that right?


what other verses do people sing as I'd love to introduce this one to my girls :)

Off the top of my head:
Can a woman mend a car...
Can a woman build a house...
Can a woman fix a pipe...
Can a woman reach the stars...
Can a woman find the cure...
Can a woman teach the dream...

Can a woman fight a fire?
Can a woman change a tire?
Can a woman lead a choir?
Yes she can, yes she can!

Yes, she can, yes she can!

Yes, she can, yes she can!

Can she play ball in the summer?
Yes, she can, yes she can!

Just you wait until we're older
Then you'll see! Then you'll see!!
We'll be women in tomorrow's
History, History!

As we grow up through the years
We'll sing out loud and clear
Can we start the process here?
Yes, we can, yes we can!
